Gift of the Gab

Kissing the Blarney Stone
Mad Dog Indulging in Tourist Silliness

In case any of you wondered about my whereabouts, I've spent the last few days in the Emerald Isle attending to a collaborative project. While in the delightful town of Cork I took time off to visit Blarney Castle where I shamelessly kissed the Stone of Eloquence (and ignored rumours that the locals urinate on it). As if I needed an endorsement to blather on and on and on...

P.S. SInce writing this post, it has been drawn to my attention that there is an epidemic of "Winter Vomiting" going around these parts. It's due to a really contagious bug called a norovirus. I'm really anxious I might succumb. Ironically I'm working on a diagnostic for this very disease back in Seattle. Ah, well, home tomorrow...
